Nursing Skills Program

Nursing Skills

Central Wisconsin Community Action (CWCAC) recently received a grant that will help individuals who would like to get into nursing or move up in the nursing field. This project has been financially supported, in part or whole, through the Wisconsin Community Action Program Association (WISCAP) with funding from the State of Wisconsin.

Medical Staff

The goal of the program is to help under-employed and unemployed, low- and moderate-income individuals with opportunities to obtain and sustain careers in the healthcare industry such as CNA’s, LPN’s, CAA’s, Medical Assistants and beyond.

Critical Care Nursing

CWCAC will work with qualified individuals to assist in enrolling them in focused educational/training courses, provide continuous job coaching, and cover tuition and other expenses that are typical barriers for individuals looking to begin a new career.

Clinical Nurse

We simultaneously will help our health care providers to curb the workforce crisis and, in so doing, ensure aging individuals and individuals with a disability can access post-acute or long-term care and assisted living services where and when they need them.
